    Over at this Macbook thread mwhities was able to install 16GB into a mid 2010 13" Macbook 2.4 Core 2 Duo P8600 that was otherwise stated to be limited by Apple to a max of 4GB and by OWC to a max of 8GB.

    Can anyone with a 2009 and 2010 iMac and (2x8GB) 16GB DDR3 RAM in a different machine try it in their 2009 and 2010 iMac?

    Screen grabs are below.

    If this picture is real and the MacBook can handle the RAM then there is no reason why the iMac shouldn't.

    My 2010 27" iMac is handling 16GB very well. Crucial RAM, though.

    My apologies for the misunderstanding. What I meant was (2x8GB) 16GB and not (4x4GB) 16GB. :)

    These are the iMacs I am referring too.

    iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.66 20-Inch (Early 2009)
    iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.66 24-Inch (Early 2009)
    iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.93 24-Inch (Early 2009)
    iMac "Core 2 Duo" 3.06 24-Inch (Early 2009)
    iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 20-Inch (Mid-2009)
    iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.26 20-Inch (Mid-2009)
